MSP-TS430PZ100AUSB: does not show up in the device manager

Part Number: MSP-TS430PZ100AUSB
Other Parts Discussed in Thread: MSP-FET

Hi, I thought that STB with an USB connector would show up in the device manager as soon as it is connected to the laptop. But it wasn't the case. I am sure I placed 430FG6626 into the ZIF socket correctly.

Is my STB broken or do I miss something else? 

  • Hi Metin, 

    Did you follow these steps on the hardware tools user guide?

  • Thank you Henok for your answer. (I coldn't respond earlier due to other obligations) 
    Yes, I followed these steps. If I connect MSP-FET it shows up in the device manager and the green LED is on. In socket target board headers 1-2 of JP3 are connected: power is supplied from the JTAG interface; headers 2-3 of JP5-JP10 are connected: to debug in 4-wire JTAG mode.
    After I connect target board with 2x7 wire to the MSP-FET and flash using CCS, red LED blinks a few times and "error connecting to the target: unknown device" message appears. Red LED is on afterwards. If I disconnect STB from the MSP-FET (or press down the ZIF socket) red LED is off and green LED is on.
    Any suggestions are appreciated.

  • Hi Metin, 

    It sounds like there is an issue with the MSP-FET and STB connection. 

    Have you probed the JTAG to check and see if the pins are working properly? My guess is that something here is not working right.

    Let me know what you find.

  • Hi Henok,

    Long story short, it turned out that the MSP-FET and target board I used are both out of order. I used another set of MSP-FET and target board and everything went seamlessly (blink project).

    Thank you for your time and guidance. Otherwise it would take much more time to find the problem on MSP-FET.

  • Metin, 

    I see, that would make sense. 

    Glad you could figure it out!

    regards, 

    Henok
